Freddy “Krimz” Johansson has just released a new video of him picking his all-time CS:GO dream team. The video was released in conjunction with the esports betting brand Rivalry. Krimz’s picks include some of the very best Counter-Strike legends.
Krimz’s first pick was Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. The 31-year old shot to fame with Fnatic way back in 2009.
Second up for the all-time dream team was NEO. The 32-year old Polish star is currently the leader of FaZe Clan. Krimz rated the Polish player’s style and said that NEO was always good to have on your team.
Krimz All-Time CS:GO Dream Team
Delpan was the third choice for the all-time CSGO team. The Swedish gamer may have retired, but Krimz was very complimentary about Delpan’s fast reflexes. The drafter described his pick as a “sick player.”
In terms of picking the ultimate support role, Krimz went for Gux. The 30-year Swedish gamer is well known for his time with Fnatic. For his part, Krimz rated Gux as a great all-around player despite his unflashy style.
For the final pick in his Counter-Strike dream team, Krimz decided to put his own name down, claiming his beard would make him a good team-mate with the equally hirsute NEO.
However, if Krimz didn’t put himself forward for the dream team, he did say that Robin ‘flusha’ Ronnquist should be the final pick. Krimz rated flusha as being a “smart player” who understands the game well.
In the video, Krimz reckons that his dream team would be able to create some ‘serious damage’ for any opponent, and would easily make any final. The video has already picked up plenty of comments on YouTube. Some gamers would have preferred to see the likes of Olof and Pronax in the dream team, while others gave Nawwk and brollan a mention.
Although Krimz picked f0rest for his all-star team, it seems that f0rest didn’t rate Krimz quite so highly. According to a similar video interview that was posted by Betway, f0rest made his dream team up out of players like RobbaN, Walle, Zet, GeT_RiGhT, and of course himself.
What about Krimz’s legacy?
Thankfully, Krimz has such a strong reputation for his gaming that he shouldn’t feel too disappointed at being missed out of f0rest’s dream team. His support play with Fnatic has made him a contender for being one of the all-time greats, and at just 25 years of age, it’s going to be fascinating to see where he goes from here.
Notably, Krimz picked many old-school stars on his shortlist. Rivalry has recently published an article that profiles some of the impressive new CSGO players such as ZywOo or EliGE. All of which has shown that there are many generations of Counter-Strike stars and it’s a testament to the game’s durability.
